Relationship & Marital Counseling


I have been working as a psychologist since 1984 in my office near the Pike Place Market.  I enjoy working with couples and individuals. I’ve been married thirty years and am a grateful mom, stepmom and grandmother.

I see individuals and couples about:

  • Attachment and commitment
  • Depression
  • Partnership
  • Communication
  • Loneliness
  • Sexuality
  • Power Struggles
  • Financial agreements
  • Boundaries
  • Contentment

The process of finding a therapist often requires tenacity.  The good “match”, timing, and philosophy all need to line up correctly.  However, the search is worth the effort when something as important as your primary relationship—or your personal well-being—is at stake.

Hold Me Tight BookHOLD ME TIGHT®

One of the most gratifying things I do is co-lead workshops based on Dr. Sue Johnson’s book, Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for Connection.” (2008). Dorsey Green, PhD, and I are starting our fourth year of holding these seminars annually in November, March and May. Virtually 100% of our participants said they would recommend this workshop to others.

We are on hiatus from leading these workshops for the rest of 2018.
